That Was Pretty Embarrasing

The Good

Burnett pitched a complete game allowing 3 runs, which should really be enough against Oakland. Jeter went 3-4 further surpassing Luis Aparicio, and setting the bar high for all shortstops in the game.

The Bad

A-Rod stepped up to bat with the bases loaded and 1 out and grounded to the pitcher for a double play. That's the kind of game the Yankees played yesterday.

The Ugly

The Yankees were dominated by former teammate Brett Tomko who pitched 5 shutout innings. Its a good thing we DFA'd him. How did we not win last night? AJ Burnett vs. Brett Tomko, and we lose? That is ugly.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

Derek Jeter 15hr = $15.00
Mark Teixeira 30hr = $30.00
Nick Swisher 20hr = $20.00
Robinson Cano 18hr = $18.00
Johnny Damon 22hr = $22.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 21hr = $21.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 1hr = $1.00
Total = $182.00

Was there a game last night? I must have missed it! Seriously, they lost that one in a hurry. It's taken me this long to get upset over the fact we lost because it happened so quick I was dumbfounded. I'll let it slide, but how about a little effort tonight, offense?

After I saw 5 innings of futility against Tomko, I just went to bed. Too much of a waste of time.

Frickin' A-Rod.

Actually it was kind of fun to watch Tomko have his revenge.

A-Rod got pegged again yesterday. Poor guy.
